Do I need a surrogate to carry our baby?

It’s rare to need a surrogate, except in exceptional cases where the woman may not have a functioning uterus.

Some women feel they are struggling because they are unable to carry a baby, but nearly all problems can be treated successfully using either medical intervention and/or donor eggs.

It is far more common to use another woman’s eggs than her womb.

Using a surrogate – (i.e. another woman to carry your baby) is obviously complex and involves ethical, legal and social services, all of which Dr Sacks can skilfully guide you through.
